Parrot OS 3.0 can now be used from the Raspberry Pi

ParrotSec 3.0 desktop

Parrot Security OS 3.0 (Lithium), the latest version for the moment of distribution to carry out security audits and ethical hacking, which we have already talked about on numerous occasions on this portal, is now also available to be used from the famous Raspberry Pi SBC. The distro can be installed on ARM-based systems, to use our Pi board as a cheap and portable hacking hub.

It didn't take long for this version for Raspberry Pi (ARM) since the launch of the version for PCs. From the Frozenbox Network portal, those responsible for the development of this pentest distro have confirmed this. From this portal you can download both the PC version and the Raspi version (at the moment there are versions of images optimized for Raspberry Pi and Cubieboard 4), as well as getting more information about the distro in question.

Other two more generic editions for computers with ARM processors, such as ARMHF rootfs and ARMHF generic rootfs. This will allow it to work on many other ARM-based devices and IoT devices (although compatibility could still be improved a bit, as it is not guaranteed in many cases). However, since they are present in Raspberry Pi and Cubieboard, which are two of the SBC-type boards that are sold the most, there is a wide range of compatibility in terms of number of users.

Anyway we will be attentive to more news and support improvements. And by the way, in case someone did not read the previous articles, say that Parrot OS 3.0 has hundreds of tools for hacking, forensic analysis, etc. You have a MATE desk, although you can use others. The base is nothing less than a Debian 8 with Linux 4.5 kernel. Now you can also notice all this power in your Raspberry Pi as we have announced, only that it will obviously be less fluid than on a PC, especially for certain tasks that require computing power (FLOPS), such as decrypting passwords ...

    Parrot works in Raspberry 3 but in quotation marks, I am amazed by the large number of people commenting that parrot works correctly in raspberry and they are nothing more than copies of articles from other web pages that have already been published by some enlightened one. Start a system and it stays in login, you run raspi-config and when trying to install lightgdm it doesn't find packages in repositories and it doesn't let you go from there, that's a huge shit.
    I have tested a lot of systems for raspberry and they do not work correctly or 20%, another that such ... an Ubuntu Mate in a Raspberry HAHAHA, the system goes like farts, very overloaded, a backfire and waste of time.
    For my opinion, Raspberry is a good thing and it has loads of outputs to set up an agile system to run small applications, etc., but since the batteries are not put into operation with the operating systems, it is not worth spending the money since many companies do not They are interested in a computer being cheap and with a free system.
